Synopsis :

Intended for courses in World Music/Ethnomusicology, an introductory course for non-music majors at four-year colleges and universities, as well as community colleges. Appropriate for students with no formal musical background and instructors with little or no formal training in ethnomusicology. [Instructors of music majors and students with some formal musical training may want to adopt the WORLDS OF MUSIC, 5th Edition (2009-comprehensive version).] This new shorter version particularly targets the music appreciation instructor who wants to take a world music approach or the world music instructor who wants to take an appreciation approach.

A propos de l'auteur:

Jeff Todd Titon is Professor of Music, Emeritus, at Brown University, where he directed the Ph.D. program in ethnomusicology from 1986 to 2013. He received a Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Minnesota, where he studied ethnomusicology with Alan Kagan, cultural anthropology with Pertti Pelto, and musicology with Johannes Riedel. He founded the ethnomusicology program at Tufts University, where he taught from 1971 to 1986. From 1990 to 1995 he served as the editor of Ethnomusicology, the journal of the Society for Ethnomusicology. He has done ethnographic fieldwork in North America on religious folk music, blues music, and old-time fiddling, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. For two years, he was the guitarist in the Lazy Bill Lucas Blues Band, a group that appeared at the 1970 Ann Arbor Blues Festival. He founded and directed an old-time, Appalachian, string-band ethnomusicology ensemble at Tufts (1981-1986) and then at Brown (1986-2013). He is the author or editor of eight books, including Early Downhome Blues, which won the ASCAP-Deems Taylor Award, Give Me This Mountain, Powerhouse for God, and the Oxford Handbook of Applied Ethnomusicology. A documentary photographer and filmmaker as well as author, he is considered a pioneer in applied ethnomusicology, phenomenological ethnography, and ecomusicology. His most recent research may be tracked on his blog at sustainablemusic.blogspot.com.

Timothy J.

He also is affiliated faculty with the university's Global and International Studies Program. He earned a Master's degree in Music History at Northwestern University, and received his Ph.D. in Ethnomusicology at Brown University, where he studied with Jeff Todd Titon. His book MAKING MUSIC IN THE POLISH TATRAS: TOURISTS, ETHNOGRAPHERS, AND MOUNTAIN MUSICIANS won the 2006 Orbis Prize for Polish Studies, awarded by the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies. He enjoys playing Polish mountain fiddle music, American old-time banjo, and singing in choirs. A revised second edition of his book SHADOWS IN THE FIELD: NEW PERSPECTIVES FOR FIELDWORK IN ETHNOMUSICOLOGY, edited with Gregory F. Barz, was published in 2008. Cooley served as the editor of ETHNOMUSICOLOGY, the journal of the Society for Ethnomusicology. His most recent book, SURFING ABOUT MUSIC (2014) considers how surfers from around the world musically express their ideas about surfing and the surfing communities, and how surfing as a sport and lifestyle is represented in popular culture.

He was the author of such classic works in ethnomusicology as Peyote Music, Enemy Way Music, Myth of the Great Star Chant, and Navajo Blessingway Singer (with coauthor Charlotte Frisbie). He was one of the founders of the Society for Ethnomusicology, and he served as its president and the editor of its journal, Ethnomusicology.
